Kalakalappu 2 – movie review

The Sequel to Kalalalappu , this story forms in the backdrop of colorful Kasi,  Raghu ( Jai) comes to kasi to claim his ancestral property to rebuild his career. He stays in a huge mansion which is maintained by Seenu( Jiva) which is actually is the property which Raghu has come to claim. Seenu finds out who Raghu is from his friend Aishwarya (Nikki Galrani) who is the tahsildar. Seenu who is ready to hand over the property to Raghu is stalled due to his sister’s marriage and his burdened with debt. Apart from having ownership of the same property both of them are swindled of money from Ganesh ( Siva) . when the ownership is resolved, Ganesh again comes into their lives to cause more trouble. How the catch Ganesh and get their money back is the rest of the story.

Comedy of errors forms the genre whole film, which has been flooded with a huge cast of comedians. Sundar C follows the same pattern of the previous film, but this one fails as it doesn’t have simple narrative.  Instead it has too small sub stories with a enormous cast, which just confuses the flow. Jiva and Jai fail miserably it comedy, but Siva in the second saves the day partially. Catherine Teresa and Nikki Galrani barely act, but they are used just as glamour dolls. With overflow of characters and too many loops Kalalalppu 2 does bring laughter but no logic and story. it gets 3/10

Sangili Bungili Kadhava Thorae – Movie review

Vasu (jiva) is a real estate dealer who has a 100% success rate in selling properties, he evens sells the worst and non saleable properties by running scams with his close friend Sooranam( Soori). His only ambition in his life is buy his own big house and make his mother ( Raadhika) happy. He finally buys a huge house and moves into it with his extended family. When he lands up he finds there is already a family living there claiming to be the descendants of the actual owner. They finally come to an agreement and live together until the matter is solved , not knowing that the house is already haunted. How they survive in the house with the ghost is the rest of the story.

Sangili Bungili Kadhava Thoare has all the ingredients for comedy horror , a simple story which equally blends in comedy and horror with a good cast. Jiva  suits the main character and gives a decent performance. Sridivya manages to keep track in the film but doesn’t have scope in the film. Comedy track is taken care of Soori and Thambi Ramaiya who manages to keep the audience entertained, but double meaning and adult comedy could have been avoided as this film is targeted towards family audience. Songs are not appealing and doesn’t go with the film. Second half is much slower and drags towards a predictable climax. I give the film 4/10

Kavalai Vendam – Movie Review


Aravind(Jiva) and Divya(Kajal) are childhood friends , they fall in love when they are in college and decide to get married even though Divya’s parents oppose it. But thier marriage doesn’t last even for a day as they get separated by a childish fight. Years later Divya decides to remarry and goes to Arjun to get a divorce. Arjun who still loves Divya decides to win her back , so agrees to give Divya the divorce on one condition she lives with him for 1 week as husband and wife.Whether Arjun gets back Divya or Divya gets her Divorce is the rest of the story.

Surprisingly with no twists or turns and a predictable story, Kavalai Vendam doesn’t ends up dull , but manages to entertain a bit. But with absolutely zero screenplay and only with dirty jokes and crazy one liners from RJ Balaji this movie cannot survive long in theaters.Though Jiva seems fit for the role, he can do better by  choosing the right films. Other than Abhinandhan’s camera work there is nothing to cheer about technically. “kavalai vendam” can be skipped with no worries .i give it 3/10

Thirunal – Movie review

After a long wait Thirunal released on August 5th, the Jiva – Nayanthara starrer was initially expected to release early this March , but was postponed for reasons unknown. Blade( Jiva) is a loyal goon for Naga (Sharath Lohitashwas) who controls Thanjavur- Kumbakonam area with his illegal activities. When Blade falls in love with Vidya(Nayanthara) the daughter of Naga’s business partner , everything changes. Blade’s loyalty comes into play when he decides to leave the life of a rowdy and lead a normal life. How Blade’s decision changes his life and others is the rest of the story.

Jiva often picks up new role and delivers on his character , one is Thirunal. Even though story never offers anything new he does his job . Nayanthara shares a decent screen space and gives decent performance. The only problem is nothing new is offered in the story and screenplay drags forever a long tasteless noodle. Unwanted characters and in consistent story telling, makes audience drown in their  seats. I give it 3/10

Pokkiri Raja – Movie Review


Pokkiri Raja Story revolves around Sanjeevi (Jiiva), who has a yawning deficiency. His normal life is affected due to this contagious yawning and he is not able to keep a straight job or a girl friend. He meets Sunitha ( Hansika) on his new job and gets attracted towards her by kind hearted nature. Sunitha too falls for him inspire of his deficiency . Sanjeevi gets into trouble with a local rowdy Gunna( Sibiraj) , who wants Sanjeevi dead at all costs. Meanwhile Sanjeevi’s yawning becomes frequent and the doctor thinks it might be life threatening too. How Sanjeevi takes control of his deficiency is the rest of the story.

This has to be the first film which has had an impact on the audience while they were seeing the movie , since everyone were yawning in the theatre. A hopeless story and nonsense screenplay . A total waste of money and energy. The censor board which regulates the content of all movies , should not allow movies with 50 % or more content with stupidity and nonsense , which would cause movie goers disgust . I would not rate this movie since I don’t consider this as one.
